Introducing Innov’Acteurs – France’s leading Ideas Management Association


Bonne fête nationale!

To celebrate Bastille Day, France’s National Day commemorating the storming of the Bastille in 1789, we’d like to introduce you to our sister organisation in France: Innov’Acteurs.

Like ideasUK is it an association for the development of innovation engagement within organisations.  It was founded in 2002 with companies like Renault, EDF and Accor as members. Today it comprises of approximately eighty companies, both in the public and private sector, who wish to share their experiences and best practices.

Innov’Acteurs sets out to support and encourage innovation at all levels of an organisation, using various methods:

  • Promotion of innovation in France.
  • Bringing together all activities contributing to development of innovative engagement
  • Arranging the exchange and sharing of experiences of their member organisations and their own knowledge
  • Stimulating forward thinking

Again, like ideasUK, they hold an annual conference to allow members to network and share ideas and an annual awards ceremony; they also have breakfast ‘think tanks’ and member meetings.
